Powerhouse is totally committed to impacting people with the love of God by bringing the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the whole world. We do this in a number of ways including:
Giving - financially supporting men and women around the world who have committed everything to bringing God’s word to unreached people groups. Currently PCC supports people and ministries in North Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Mexico, Peru, Haiti, Albania, and various locations in NJ.
Praying- prayerfully uplifting these men and women on a daily basis, as well as the people they are ministering to.
Going - sending teams from Powerhouse to assist our missionaries in the work they are doing.
Powerhouse Supported Missionaries
Wings of Refuge
Petionville, Haiti – Alexa DeMiglio
Wings of Refuge promotes the physical, mental, and spiritual transformation of underprivileged children to empower them with opportunities for success in obedience to the call of Christ. Wings of Refuge Children's Home opened on May 21, 2011 under our own Alexa DeMiglio's leadership, and is currently home to thirty-four children. The children receive three meals a day, an in-depth education, clean clothes, a family in the form of lots of brothers, sisters, moms & dads, plus lots of love that points them to the limitless love of Christ.
Child Hope International
Port-Au-Prince, Haiti - Betsy Barnett
Betsy is another member of our Powerhouse family who stepped up to serve God in Haiti after the earthquake. Child Hope provides orphaned, abandoned, and at-risk children with physical, educational, spiritual, and personal care through homes, programs, and ministries that are centered on the love and knowledge of Christ Jesus. Betsy works at Child Hope as a sewing instructor, training young adults this sustainable vocational skill, and also serves as a house mom to visiting interns. We are thankful to see our two “home-grown” missionaries making an impact together in Haiti, as many of the Wings of Refuge teams serve with Child Hope in their feeding program. ChildHope.org
Solid Foundation New Jersey (SFNJ)
Allendale, NJ - Steve Wolfe
SFNJ is a local organization that builds relationships with youth through skateboarding and other arts. SFNJ holds weekly skate sessions open to the public, reaching hundreds of kids each week. Steve and his staff also hold outreach events and go to skateboarding communities in other areas to share the Gospel through the common thread of self-expression.
Hope Albanian Church
Elmwood Park, NJ – Mike Durante
Mike served as part of a church-planting team with Open Air Campaigners (OAC) in Korca, Albania. After returning home for health reasons, he eventually felt called by God to serve the growing Albanian community in NJ. Hope Albanian Church serves a community that is hungry for the Gospel after years of living under Communist rule in Albania. The church holds Sunday night services at 6:30pm, and they are looking for volunteers to help teach ESL (English as a Second Language) classes. For further info, contact the Missions Team.
Peru – Ken & Cathie Metz
Ken and Cathie work in central Peru through church planting and pastoral care. They have seen transformation in many parts of Peru by working with local people who are answering the Lord’s call to minister to their fellow Peruvians. Ken and Cathie also work with victims of domestic violence, a major problem there due to high alcoholism and unemployment rates. Many of these cultures were formerly unreached with the Gospel. Please join us in prayer for these devoted servants of the Lord!
Powerhouse is excited to partner with Sam who serves in a “closed” country in Africa, where being a Christian is illegal. Her team serves predominantly Muslim young people. There are many challenges to this assignment, but the ministry is a true testament that we serve a powerful God who can bring His light to the darkest places. Pray with us for Samantha's safety and for the Lord to continue to use her to reach this community.
Listed below are other organizations around the world that Powerhouse does not directly support financially, but with whom our Missions Team have a relationship, and we pray for their success in spreading the Gospel and developing followers of Christ.
